For 'Someone Special'

It's Colour Week at Just Us Girls and Hosting is Sue
Welcome to today's post.
With such bold bright colours I decided to
go soft on my Trendy Spring Blooms from STAMPlorations
die cutting them in white and highlighting the centres.
I looked at my ribbon collection and found I had
matching ribbons in the  three colours.
Added them to the Henna embossed background
by Darice. Punched out a few smaller flowers
adding gems to the centres.
Finished off with my sentiment from
STAMPlorations Fluttery.
Pop over and see more brightly coloured creations

Chic of the Week you are in the running to be
Our Guest in March.
